MWE 2015 is the 11th edition of the workshop series on Multiword
Expression which have been held almost every year since 2003 in
conjunction with ACL, EACL, NAACL, COLING and LREC.

The workshop provides the main venue of the field for interaction, sharing
of resources and tools and collaboration efforts for advancing the
computational treatment of
Multiword Expressions (MWEs). The workshop is targeted at anyone working
on a variety of languages and MWE types.

MWEs include idioms (storm in a teacup, sweep under the rug), fixed
phrases (in vitro, by and large, rock’n roll), noun compounds (olive oil,
laser printer), compound verbs
(take a nap, bring about), among others. These, while easily mastered by
native speakers, are a key issue and a current weakness for natural
language parsing and generation, as well as real-life applications
depending on some degree of semantic
interpretation, such as machine translation, just to name a prominent one
among many.
